I just read a book that filled me with wonder and awe. Now, would it startle you to hear that it was a book about wasps? Don’t cringe and turn away; listen as I talk to entomologist Eric Eaton, author of the new book, “Wasps: The Astonishing Diversity of a Misunderstood Insect.” 

The world would be a much worse place without wasps, if it were a place at all, is what I came away thinking about after reading Eaton’s new book. Eaton is previously lead author on the “Insects of North America” volume in the popular “Kaufman Field Guide” series. We talked about fear of wasps, yes, and what to do when they set up housekeeping by your back porch, but also about how much they contribute to the environment.
